ID'ing fern

I feel so stupid. I was in Lowes the other day, and saw these ferns. I got so nostalgic, because my Nana had them all over her house, and I hadn't seen them in ages. I know they aren't 'rare.' but like I said... hadn't seen one in many years. Unfortunately, the tag only said 'Assorted ferns. Full sun.' Well, I'm not the least knowlegeable about ferns, but I believe most of them do NOT like sun???
I've searched for pictures of ferns to try to ID it, but no luck. Can anyone tell me what it is and how to care for it? I can't figure out for the life of me, how to load the pic, so if this doesn't work, and you want to have a look at the picture, please email me and I'll send it to you. If the pic does load, it looks a bit like a springeri, but it isn't at all. It a VERY fine delicate feathery looking fern.

Thank you for the instructions!... Hope this works. The fern has a very 'layered look.' Not fronds going everywhich way like a springerii or boston. Its very delicate and feathery.

Looks like Asparagus Fern, which is not a true fern at all but a perennial with fern like foliage. Often used by florists in cut flower arrangements.
